Re: YOU'RE NEXT! (1940) Catlett and Collins

Among several stills I have from this short is one (#471-6) of a deleted opening scene showing Eddie Fetherston as the guy who robbed and tied up Catlett & Collins. He appears nowhere else in the film, but there's a cast credit for all those logging such things (like me!)

Re: The Spy (1929)

A friend of mine has a 16mm print of THE SPY. I viewed it at his house back in April 1997.

Trade Papers available to public?

Did you notice? dept.: At the 7:35 minute mark of Hubby's Night Out (Christie 1917), copies of Moving Picture World can be seen on the newstand rack. Only 15 cents. I've wondered about that. Occasionally I've spotted "Motion Picture Herald"s or "Film Daily"s displayed at newssta...

Re: Walter Catlett

One thing I find interesting about Walter Catlett (and maybe I'm the only one!) is that sometimes when he signed his autograph he would draw a cat face in the middle of his name Catlett. And he also wore a ring with that same cat face on it. Sometimes it can be seen in films when there is a clear en...

Re: Edgar Kennedy short THANKS AGAIN

Ed,
I viewed the LoC's 35mm print there about 5 or 6 years ago. It was later shown at Cinefest 30, on March 27, 2010 (I wrote the Program Booklet notes for it, having seen it and being familiar with it).

So, as Richard said, it's there somewhere. And, yes, it's a very funny one!

Re: Lloyd Hamilton Wedding Belles 1931?

IMDB states Century Productions with only a 1931 release year, no date./quote] I ran WEDDING BELLES in Manchester, NH on 7-20. Three eagle eyed Sons of the Desert viewers noticed the 1934 NRA symbol on a newspaper headline page. The short was made in 1934. We concluded it may actually have been mad...
